Darken specific areas of an image such as bright skies and allow for a normal, unaffected exposure in the other regions of the image using the B+W F-Pro 702 ND MRC Filter. The filter is densest at the edge and tapers to clear by the middle, with a soft-edged line of transition between the dense and clear areas. Since the B+W F-Pro 702 ND MRC Filter has a soft-edged line of transition, it is particularly useful for images that do not have a strongly defined transition between the sky and the foreground. The design of the B+W F-Pro 702 ND MRC Filter incorporates a rotating mount to allow for precise positioning of the gradation along the horizon line.
